Watch: Lionel Messi embarrasses Luis Suarez with perfectly executed nutmeg

Football News

Usually, Lionel Messi's Barcelona teammates get to watch on and admire the Argentinian as he deploys his array of skills on the opposition.

The Camp Nou squad don't get away totally scot-free, though, as, when it isn't match day, they have to go up against Messi themselves in training.

Luis Suarez has become the latest to discover just how hard that is, with footage emerging today showing the former Liverpool striker suffering the humiliation of being nutmegged by an ultra-casual Messi during a training session.

The video, uploaded onto Barcelona's official social media pages today, doesn't do Suarez any favours as the slow motion footage sees Messi biding his time before slotting the ball easily between the legs of the Uruguayan as he tries to win back possession.

Both players immediately broke down in laughter but at least Suarez is in good company - Messi himself has probably lost count of the number of people he has nutmegged during his illustrious career.

And the ex-Premier League striker clearly learned his lesson as, later in the same video, Suarez can be seen paying more attention to ensuring he isn't nutmegged again rather than trying to intercept a pass from the diminutive Argentinian.

Looking forward

Messi, Suarez and the rest of the Barcelona squad are in England at the moment preparing for their International Champions Cup fixture against Celtic on Saturday.

Beyond that, they will be hoping to build towards yet another successful campaign at Camp Nou as the 2016/17 season fast approaches.

Having combined to score over 100 goals for Barcelona last season, they will be hoping to reproduce the same form this time around alongside the other member of 'MSN', Neymar.

If they can come anywhere near close to doing that, then they will once again be favourites to win every competition they play in.
